new. here in michigan, obviously, it's been very hard hit in large part because of the auto industry. the white house, clearly, picked the gm headquarters to talk a little bit about the auto bailouts which they believe saved thousands of jobs. and the unemployment rate in this state has dropped. two summers ago it was over 14%. now it's 10.9%. but, obviously, still far worse than the national average, still very dangerous politically for a president who's facing re-election. i should note as well that some of the union officials, the labor crowd, the president also trying to rev up his political operation heading into 2012. the teamster president, jimmy hoffa jr., was speaking a couple moments ago and saying we'll remember in november who's with the working people. he was chiding republicans, specifically named the tea party, and then his language got a lot stronger, and pardon my language as i repeat it. he said of the tea party and republicans, quote, let's take these sons of bitches out. it got some cheers here from the crowd in detroit. megyn: i just want to make sure we understa
% of the vote. the florida straw poll isn't the only one we're watching. the michigan republican party will have one. we'll hopefully have results around 8:30 eastern time. mitt romney and rick perry are the favorites. both made appearances at that event. during his speech, perry took a shot to his fellow front-runner mitt romney and tried to put his rough debate performance behind him. >> there are may be slicker candidates, and there may be smoother debaters, but i know what i believe in. i'm going to stand on that belief every day. i will guide this country with a deep, deep rudder. >> for all your political news and updates, you know the place to go. cnn.com/politics. >>> five minutes past the hour. let economy turn to seattle now where -- let me turn to seattle now where a fire-fight ends with a man being killed after being armed with two rifles. [ gunfire ] >> you're hearing it play out there. apparently this man was walking down the street pointing the guns at people. he didn't fire until he got to an elementary school. next door to where this happened, a high school football was going on
. the former massachusetts government mitt romney defeated the competition in a michigan state of the union troll but the governor romney was been in michigan. and now, shannon is live in washington. you were in florida talking with the straw poll voters. what drove them to herman cain. >>reporter: a combination. a lot of folks told us they were disappointed in rick perry's debate performance but others responded to the barn burner speech that herman cain gave after the debate. he says people like his ideas. >> the establishment and all of these other people they will have to get out of denial and recognize that my message is what is resonating with the people who are beginning to actually cast a vote. >> the other candidates that spent quite a bit of money in florida, herman cain rented a bus and drove around and talked to people. >>trace: the frontrunner, how are they going after each other today? >>reporter: a new video and rick perry is pointing out the differences that romney has between his hard back book, no apology, and the paperback version which deletes a controversial line about
medication, astrazeneca may be able to help. >>> the political spotlight is on florida and michigan this weekend. earlier today, mitt romney won the straw poll at the republican conference of 681 votes cast, romney captured 51% and candidate rick perry won 16%. in the florida straw poll yesterday, involving the republican presidential candidates, herman cain was the big winner, collecting 37% of the votes. rick perry came in second. and michele bachmann got just 1%. cain said the win shows he cannot be ignored. >>> what does the florida straw poll win mean for herman cain's campaign and is new jersey governor chris christie being pressured to enter the presidential race. earlier today, i spoke with political blogger danielle belton about the changing political landscape of the presidential race. so, danielle, leading up to this straw poll, some were willing to say that this was a two-man race between romney and perry. herman cain's win in florida, that straw poll, how much of a game changer is this? >> well, you know, as exciting as this probably is for herman cain and people who su
. >> yeah, florida and then also as well michigan this morning. let's start in michigan, the re. at the top, mitt romney with 51% of the delegates voting for him. we knew he would do well, the former massachusetts governor was born in michigan, his dad was a popular governor. romney won the republican primary last time around. perry way down in -- way, way back there. he did go to michigan to campaign for this. but not so well in the results. let's go to the one out of florida. this is the florida presidency five. the winner was not rick perry, which a lot of people thought he would be. it was herman cain by a long shot. there is rick perry at 15%. romney at 14 and so on. and, fred, this is interesting because maybe these results are a reflection of the uneven debate performances we have seen from rick perry, both in florida. could be troubling. he's still the front-runner but this is troubling for rick perry. >> so straw polls, how important are they really? >> yes and no. they're a test of a campaign outreach to activists. important republicans. but, no, listen, if it was all about straw
the jobs numbers and this city suffering worst than most. unemployment here is at -- well, in michigan it's at 10.9%, but in detroit it's almost at 16%. over 50% are among the long-term unemployed. why does that matter in this is a state that the president won by 17 points. and now his approval rating in the state is at 34%. those are bismol numbers, ted. he has to get the numbers up if he hopes to win re-election. we will see the president here not just today but a lot in the next year as he campaigns for re-election. >> any hint on what he will talk about today and specifically if there will be any sneak peek into what he will deliver on thursday in terms of his plan? >> in terms of the plan we will hear him talk about the fact that he will press for measures that had bipartisan support in the past. this is a big theme for the white house, the kinds of initiatives he is proposing to increase job employment in this country, and they have had the support of republicans previously so should again. i know that we will have him talk about the importance of having a strong middle class for ec
wants to put romney away. >> we also had another straw poll from michigan this morning and i think it was 50% -- more than 50% here. 50.9%. the mackinaw straw poll, rick perry 16.8%. mitt romney runs away with it now. he's basically the hometown boy in michigan. his father was governor there and this is activist republicans, romney's a very familiar name. is there anything we should read into any of these straw polls? >> you don't want to overinterpret straw polls. 600 or 700 people in michigan voting in that, 400 or 500 in florida. the races continue to be unsettled. i think what we've learned this weekend is that there's going to be an extended fight between mitt romney and rick perry. they both have some strength. they both have a considerable amount of money, we think, the ability to raise money. and neither of them have closed the deal. that's what i take away from this weekend. >> mitt romney has been an incredibly lucky candidate. when he was coasting along as the front-runner, in the spring and summer the other candidates didn't want to engage too much with one another. the
poll result. the other one that came out this weekend, michigan, and mitt romney is at the top. no surprise here. listen, romney was born in michigan. his father a former governor there. very popular. romney won the primary there back in 2008. he was expected to win. but perry did go up to michigan and campaign and he was a distant second. for perry, i think a lot of people are saying that those uneven debate performances, especially last week and the attacks on rick perry over his stance on illegal immigration, may be taking a toll. one other thing from the debates or from the straw polls, michele bachmann nowhere to be seen near the top. remember she won the straw poll in iowa in august. but she finished very low down in both of these straw polls. one thing about those, they are important. they are a gauge or a test or a barometer of a campaign with a lot of activists. they are not the end all and be all. if they were, herman cain or ron paul would be the nominee, and nobody thinks that is very likely, kyra. >> mitt romney going to meet with donald trump today. what is it abo
-runner's status this weekend. mitt romney won michigan straw poll by a 3-1 margin over perry. now, romney's father served as michigan governor in the '60s making the son somewhat of a home state favorite. in florida, herman cain took top billing. he drew twice as many votes as perry, with romney in third place. cain says he won because voters are beginning to notice his 999 tax plan. here's how he explains it. >> my plan is bold because it throws out the tax code and imposes a business flat tax of 9%, personal flat tax of 9%, national sales tax of 9%. it replaces all of the taxes that people are now having to grapple with and it provides search engine to the business community which is what they're looking for in order to grow this economy. >> governor perry jumped into the race for the gop nomination. that was just six weeks ago. instantly topped the polls but critics say that perry's debate performances have been kind of shaky, leaning to some doubts. >>> well, in 3 1/2 hours we're going to get new details on the washington monument and perhaps when it's going to reopen to tourists. it's been cl
been very useful to democrats in michigan. in the auto industry. so, initially, you have this sort of sense of acquiescence by democrats that, all right, we don't normally offset emergency funding, but to get this through and to avoid another big fight, we're going to do it. but then democrats seemed to sense an opening. there was a newly combative attitude coming out of the white house thaw referred to earlier, and they decided to hold the line on their troops, and they voted against the c.r. in the house, sending the original, in the original vote it we want down to defeat. republicans rallied. they made cosmetic changed to get their people on board. and then the senate, which had been expected to sort of swallow whatever came over from the house, decide that had they would get their back up and that they would block, which they did. so now we're supposed to have a vote on the democrat i go version, which provides extra money in disaster relief without cutting the loan program or the other things that republicans threw in, but that's expected to fail as well. so over the weekend,
away their money. host: let's go to griffin, independent in michigan. caller: i keep hearing about the secretary of warren buffett. i do taxes. i figure if the secretary has a standard deduction, she would have to have an income of 90,000 a year. that would equal his 17.4%. using the word secretary, which is 50,000 on average at best in michigan and using that as an example is very disingenuous. i would like to hear it stop. host: we have a comment on twitter. echoing a the sentiments of a caller a moment ago. caller: i think it is unfair as far as the taxes that the rich pay, which is really nothing. i do not know if anyone has ever watched, because my grandkids watched the sweet 16 parties. it is nothing for them to spend $100,000 for their kids parties and then on top of that really expensive cars. the rich do not fight wars. their children do not go to fight wars. they should pay extra, because we are making them safe and allowing them to have their free will and the expense of the lives. and they can appear -- paid $20,000 for a pair of shoes. it is unfair. that could be a sal
>> nice to see you this morning. >> mitt romney fared much better in michigan, emerging the clear winner in that state's straw poll. >> when you look around this republican field, apart from romney, who is there that you could put forward as a credible candidate that would have a chance of winning? >> let's bring in lenny curry, chairman of the republican party of florida. lenny, before saturday's straw poll, you said one of the most important things that voters in florida would consider was electability. how electable is herman cain? uh-oh. lenny, do we have you there? can you hear me okay? lenny? >> yeah, i got you now. >> let me just re-ask that question. before the straw poll on saturday, you said that one of the most important things that florida voters would be considering was electability. how electable is herman cain? >> florida is a representative sample of the gop electorate in florida is representative of what you see across the country. so if a candidate can win florida in our primary, they are arguably ee -- will be electable and competitive in a general election. and
ri are in michigan on mackinaw island but before rick perry departed the sunshine state he spoke to a prayer breakfast of republican activists and made it clear thesis there has to be a kind of candidate not necessarily skilled in debating but firm in his conviction, casting himself as such one. listen to this. >> americans are looking for in a candidate, they are looking for an authentic principled leader. [ applause ] >> think about it. you have seen what happens when our country chooses leaders who emphasize words over deeds. >> . >> reporer: as i said earlier, a number of candidates had an opportunity to speak today. each of them making their pitch why they belong in the oval office but also making a pitch for whether they want their name bhecked off in this ballot. here is a little bit of the speech earlier today. >> when you cast your ballot at this straw poll, send washington on mechblg. they are ready for a problem solver, not another politician. they are ready for solutions. they ready for solutions. that is what the united states of america, the premium of ready for. se
at the straw poll. instead going to his birthplace of michigan. >> i bet you remember my dad, don't you? >> i do. >> reporter: in the wake of today's surprise, analysts say romney is clearly the frontrunner. >> not open to your average political june key. >> reporter: a wild card in the race, more washington dysfunction, even as disaster victims still struggle to recover. the agency that aids them, fema, is now caught in a partisan funding fight. unless congress can agree, funds run out at midweek with a larger governmentwide shutdown looming friday. analysts say the gridlock could be a problem for the republican party next year. >> can they take independent voters away from president obama and win the white house in the fall of 2010. >> reporter: as we said, cain didn't just win. he rolled over everyone beating his nearest competitor by 23 points. rick perry had 15%. mitt romney at 14%. it's a real head-scratcher. one interpretation we're already getting is this demonstrates the desire on the part of the gop electorate for another candidate, a third candidate besides perry and romney to get
'm president. >> reporter: both romney and perry moved on to michigan, which is holding its own straw poll on sunday. in florida, michele bachmann needed to show she is still a top-tier candidate. >> i have no doubt that president obama will be a one-term president. >> reporter: and for the others, florida is a fight for survival. >> barack obama has been the best food-stamp president in american history. >> this is the most important election in your lifetime. >> reporter: the trail to 2012, getting shorter but not easier. brian mooar, nbc news. >>> and here in the bay area, president obama's scheduled to make a quick fund-raising visit tomorrow. today he spent a little time on the golf course. president clinton there. no word on what they discussed during their 18 holes. as for the fund-raising trip, if you want to meet the president when he visits, you'll need to cough up a fair am of money. his first stop will be at the home of the chairman of si men tech for a reception, the cost, $2,400 per person. but if you want to dine with the president, that costs more, $35,800 to be exact. for
